I'm not quite clear in what you are saying:
<< I recently performed a free upgrade from NIS 2009 to 2010 via the free upgrade. On the bottom where it says how many days are left for your subscription the days do not change unless I manually go to the subscription status and change it myself. >>
The free upgrade from 2009 to 2010 does not change your remaining unexpired subscription days.
Is that what you are seeing? Or is it showing 0 days as some have reported?
Please clarify but in any case if it is not showing you correctly the number of days you should have left before the subscription expires then please get in touch with Customer Support since they are skilled at sorting out subscriptions:
To contact customer support Click on this link and work on from there.
You can choose CHAT or Email; phone may have a long wait time and feedback from users tells us that CHAT is by far the best at resolving problems.
Note that that link is to the USA/CAN website so if you are located elsewhere I'm sure you will be able to find the equivalent location on your local Symantec website; some pages have a link at the top right where you can select the country you are located in.
But if you are saying that the countdown is stuck and does not change at all please confirm that. I'm not sure how you can go to the subscription status and change the remaining days manually!
Sorry not to be very clever today!

Please contact Symantec Customer chat service again, they will probably know of another route to fix the synchronisation problem.

<< The countdown is stuck and does not change from day to day >>
Hey that's the good news! What's the bad news? <g>
Seriously, please go back to Customer Support as Yaso suggests, we recommend by chat, and tell them it did not work but if they start talking about restoring Windows I suggest you don't do it and come and tell us. It is always a good idea to have an image of your system that you can restore in case anything does go catastrophically wrong and I don't mean with Norton Support!
If they can't fix it with a second try please come back and let us know -- do that in any case please.
Meanwhile I've flagged this for further attention so keep your eyes open here also please.
OH YES -- check and make sure that your system clock is showing the correct time and date -- that's the clock down in the bottom right corner of the bottom bar. If it is not correct double click on it and make sure it is set to the correct time zone, time and date. If it is not this is known to cause problems.

How did you install free upgrade to 2010 version? Is that an over install on top of a Norton 2009 program? OR Did you uninstall Norton 2009 and then installed free Norton 2010 upgrade?
You can try uninstalling the current version using the Norton Removal Tool. Make sure that you run the removal tool multiple times(2-3 times) restarting the computer after each time you run it. Then install the Norton 2010 upgrade. You can use the same Product key for activation. Let us know how it goes.
